Alternative courses associated with HV Switching

We understand that sometimes combining courses or offering refreshers are much cheaper than either taking separate courses or re-doing a unit from the very beginning. Volt Edge has your back.

HV Switching Refresher – For most HV Switching Operators, their licence needs to be updated every 2-3 years.

HV Switching Refresher and Coordination – Coordination on its own costs $495, but when you combine it with HV Switching Refresher, pay only $300 for the Coord units. The Coordination course will take approximately two days online to complete at your own pace.

HV Switching and Coordination – Enrol in these two courses together and save on what you would spend taking them separately.
To enrol in either HV Refresher, HV Refresher & Coordination, or HV Switching & Coordination, please go to the training calendar.
